Doors Of The Poor In Dausa District

Why BJP government’s move to paint the doors of the poor in Dausa district is absurd

New Delhi: In an apparent move to ‘identify’ the poor  and to make them avail the benefits of National Food Security Act (NFSA) scheme, the state Bhartiya Janata Party  has gone about painting the doors of all poor households in Dausa district of Rajasthan. The doors now read “I am poor…I get ration” and this serves as an ‘eligibility’ to get subsidized Ration. This, for obvious reasons, has sparked a lot of controversy among social activists and the opposition has pooled in for political mileage.
